THE MAN WHOFORMED THE VISION
AnExperienced Associated Professor with a demonstrated history of working in thehigher education industry, Rajesh Naidualways has a vision to transform and make life simple in health sector throughtechnology and he made his dream came true with MELDOC. After inception, Rajesh'sextensive years of experience and medical knowledge supported the MELDOC toreach where it is today.
Rajeshis highly passionate and dedicated about what he does. He is skilled in BusinessPlanning, Team Building, and Healthcare Information Technology (HIT),Management, and Orthopaedic Surgery. Heholds a M.S orthopaedic surgery focused in complicated Trauma, Arthroplasty,Arthroscopy and spine from Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences and ResearchCentre.
"Back in2016, when Rajesh was working, he was messed up with his work life balance alot. He was not able to find the number of cases? Another problem was relatedto the recording payment details on daily basis like which hospital isgenerating more revenue and many more.
He says, "I was wasting a lot of time onunnecessary stuff. I could not renew my life insurance for two years and healthinsurance for three years. I was missing a lot of external works related to myhospital."
Further heshares about an incident, "Once, one of my colleagueswent in a conference, and he said there I have already done thisstudy. They asked him to show the document. The doctor was not having thedocument with him. He said it is at home, and he started searching his Gmailand all. Many people do cases, approach like this, but they should haveevidence otherwise they did nothing. One case holds a huge number ofphotographs that doctors save in their gallery but it is not possible topresent them in a single moment."
In India, wehave a variety of data than the developed countries but, we are not able toshowcase the techniques and talent to the world. Because we have don't have aplace to aggregate them in a streamlined manner.
Besides, inIndia doctors have to see hundreds of patients in a day while in western andother developed countries, doctors see 10 patients in a day. There, doctorshave time to do journals and papers. And, they have an already organizedstructure where they can store their research in one place, reattribute themand use it for future presentations.
In this way,western countries are doing a lot of journals and papers and we are followingtheir techniques. Although in India, doctors are doing more data, they are notable to showcase them to the world. This is a big challenge for Indian doctors.
The conceptof MELDOC is based on a networking system only for doctors across the globe.Where they can share their clinical data, ask for new studies, stay aware aboutthe latest innovation in global market and can provide medical advice in remotelocations.
